What is a medical or nurse case manager?
A medical or nurse case manager is someone who takes on a case, such as a workers compensation one, and develops a plan to ensure that the person makes a full recovery. At Wasatch Nurse Case Management in Utah, we take every case that we receive seriously and create treatment plans that are specific to both the individual and their injury. Our nurse case managers in Salt Lake City, Logan, Provo, St.George, Idaho Falls, and surrounding areas provide assistance to employers and insurers to ensure that any employee injured on the job gets a dedicated treatment plan.
What is telephonic case management?
We understand that not everyone is able to travel to us (or vice versa) due to geographical limitations. That’s why we offer telephonic management in Salt Lake City and cities and states all over the United States. This is basically everything that we do in person but over the phone. Employee can’t make it in? We’ll set them up with a treatment plan that we can deliver and follow up on over the phone!
What's the benefit of having a registered nurse develop a treatment plan?
If you broke your car and brought it to a mechanic for a repair, what would you say if a businessman came out and said that he was going to be the one repairing your vehicle? You’d probably ask for someone who actually had automotive experience, instead. That’s the logic that should be used when choosing a nurse case manager in Utah. You want someone with a medical background!
How are treatment plans developed?
Our nurse case managers in Salt Lake City, Logan, Provo, St. George, Idaho Falls, and surrounding areas develop our treatment plans based on the employee’s injury and their medical history. From there, we will create a plan that includes doctor’s visits, therapy, injury rehabilitation, and checkups. We want to make sure that each case we handle is treated with care.
What kind of injuries do you create treatment plans for?
We take on a wide array of cases as long as we’re sure that we’ll be able to confidently help the employee regain their health. Some of the more common workers’ comp injuries include:
- Slips and falls
- Strains and overuse injuries including Tendonitis
- Pulled muscles

My employee was just injured on te job. What now?
